I have often thought that a cub van would be good to use for a lawn cutting truck.Does any one use cube vans for this?If so what do you think of using them?<p>from:Adam<br>AB Lawn Care

There are a few cube vans running around here used in this business. I think it is a great idea too. Good place to store your equipment out of the rain. If you could get a deisel one it would be perfect.
 
Their is a couple around here. I guy I know runs 2 looking for third. He like them better then a truck and trailer. He put a rediramp on the back to get the mower in and out. Only down fall here is what do you do with them in the winter?? no good to plow with. Cant haul bulk with? Its like haveing an enclosed trailer but it all in one instead of truck and trailer.

Cub Vans are good if you are not bagging any grass. They have no place to put grass. It might be kind of a pain to off load a cub van full of grass. Unless you can afford to have a p/up follow the cube to the bagging lawns. Which means another truck and another driver. If you do not have a lot of lawns to bag then cube vans are awesome. It is like a little traveling shop. Everything you need is inside.

Z7199999, Couldn't you just pull a trailer behind the cube van for grass clippings. <p> Hey Adam, I think I read somewhere that you are from Stratford, do you know Cosyn's Greenhouses in Stratford? I cut their cottage near where I live, small world I guess.

Have any of you checked out the Super Lawn Truck? It is pricey but it is the ultimate in advertising, security, efficiency and ego. Check it out at www.superlawntruck.com<br>David
